Hearts & Hammers 2007
Saturday, September 22, 2007
Hearts and Hammers works with the City of Dallas to identify
homeowners who need assistance to keep their homes' exteriors within
city code. H&H gathers materials, volunteer teams and resources, each
team chooses a house and does the needed-and much appreciated
work-once a year on workday.
This year we are in South Dallas. Our N. Texas Peace Corps
Association house is located at 3167 E. Ledbetter Dr., Dallas 75216.
Our homeowner is Hattie Lee Moore, 82, and her 60 year old son Willie
lives with her. Mrs. Moore and Wille have lived in the house for over
20 years, and are very appreciative for our volunteer assistance.
The work the house needs is straightforward and much needed-scrape,
paint, replace rotted wood, build a handrail, etc. We will need a
full crew of 20-25 folks, and if you feel you don't have any technical
skills please come because you will learn on the job and have a
What to bring: 3 EMPTY GALLON PLASTIC JUGS, 2 4" PAINTBRUSHES,
scrapers, any painting stuff you have, sunscreen, a hat, beverages (no
beer), your toolbox, broom, hearts, rags, hammers, circular saw,
LADDERS, yard tools and lots of elbow grease. I am your captain this
year, please call me to sign up and ask any other questions.
Directions: Take I-35 south to I-30 east to I-45 south, or Central
Expy. south through downtown Dallas to I-45 south. After about 3
miles exit Loop 12/Ledbetter and go west (right). Go right at the
